The Wedgwood Advent House

Wedgwood have constructed some prime real estate with this iconic 24–piece advent house – new for 2014. Handcrafted in the UK using a laser cutting technique this house exudes all the charm of genuine Georgian architecture with the addition of the signature Wedgwood blue accents behind each door and an alabaster facade. More than being just a marvel to admire, as each day of advent arrives a delightful Wedgwood blue and white Jasper ware porcelain ornament can be discovered behind each window. Each ornament is presented in an individually numbered pouch. The house's rear doors open fully to allow safe storage of the ornaments. 

We suspect this could become a treasured collectors item as only 3 limited edition advent houses have been made. And it is certain to become a sentimental family heirloom. Perhaps better suited to the more discerning child – this beautiful creation can be yours to take home for a cool £12,000.
